Contemporary riverside chalet (one of just six) in the heart of the beautiful Basque countryside just 30 minutes from Biarritz. Shared heated pool. Wonderfully peaceful location and a great base from which to explore the Basque Country.

We had a lovely stay at the riverside chalet! We were so lucky to find this accommodation last minute. Thank you Cathy and Jon for making it possible for us to experience the basque countryside. We would love to come back in the summer one day. We definitely recommend a stay here!

Cathy was a very pleasant host and the arrival went smoothly. The cabin is nicely rustic but with everything one needed, including a washing machine which came in very handy at that stage of our travels. A wonderful setting in a very nice part of France.

Chalet no.5 is very cosy, private and has an awesome view. It is simple, but has everything you need. Cathy and John made us feel very welcome and they gave us all the privacy we wished for. The surroundings are very nice, espacially St. Jean de Luz and Biarritz are wonderful.

Cathy is a good, thoughtful host and the chalet was as described. The weather was a bit chilly during our stay, but we were provided with a heater. Biarritz, St Jean de Luz and San Sebastian are all easily accessible from here. The nearby small town of Bastide-Clairence had a very good, traditional Basque restaurant on the main square, and directly opposite a cafe selling wonderful hot chocolates. We were welcomed by two of Cathy's cats - Puss Puss and Charlie and also were able to have a chat with the two goats, so this place is perfect for animal lovers.

This quaint riverside chalet is clean, modern, and cute as promised in the photos. The pool was wonderful and the views of the foothills are not to be missed. Chalet had a nice sitting area, dining table and kitchen. Fridge was generously stocked with breakfast supplies. We enjoyed our brief weekend stay. Would recommend to those traveling to the area as an excellent weekend getaway in southern France!

We really enjoyed the peace and quiet of the French countryside. It was a true luxury to be able to use the swimming pool in mid October. The place was easy to find, and it is only about 15 or 20 minutes from the Motorway. The chalet comes with all the basics you will need. There is no TV connection, however, there is a TV and DVD player, along with a collection of DVDs, books, leaflets and an information pack. Of these, we only used the information pack, as there are many things to see and do in the area! Cathy was a fantastic host and was very quick to reply to my emails. She, Jon and their pets, especially Charlie the cat made us feel most welcome! I would recommend this place to anyone!

Response from Cathy:
Thank you so much for such a kind review Alex. Can I just point out for future guests that we are actually only a 10 minute drive from the motorway (Bayonne is 25 minutes away and Biarritz 35 minutes away). Cathy

Bel and I had a lovely stay here. In the quiet countryside, with beautiful villages nearby and great views of the surrounding hills. Under an hour to a lot of the beaches around Biarritz and Hossegor - good for surfing. The chalets are comfy, simple and complete. The hosts are friendly and informative. Their animals are nice too. The pool was very nice even during autumn. Should we have the chance we would happily stay here again.

I and my husband Jon have been living in France for over 20 years. I am originally from Cornwall and Jon is from York. I first lived in Paris for 7 years where I worked for a New York law firm as a bilingual PA, then ran a luxury rental villa/B&B in Grasse on the Cote d'Azur for 10 years and we now live in the beautiful Basque country near Biarritz. Jon is a graphic designer and photographer and works in the yachting industry. We love living in the Basque country as we have the best of both worlds: the beautiful countryside and riverside location, and the stunning coastline just a short drive away. Jon is a keen surfer and can help with recommending the best surf spots! We love the huge choice of excellent restaurants and bars in the area, including across the border in Spain in San Sebastián, Fuentarribia and Pamplona.
